Jaman publishes "unsupported" AppleTV hack

mrspin (1139955) writes "Back in July, Jaman, which sells high definition movie downloads, announced that it was on the verge of releasing the first commercial plug-in for the AppleTV. With the software installed, movies downloaded via Jaman's desktop software, running on a Mac or PC, would also show up in a new menu option on a user's AppleTV. If released, this would represent the first time a commercial company had successfully plugged their service into Apple's set-top-box, to create a level playing field with Apple's own content offerings. Last100 reports: "that day has finally arrived, albeit with a pretty heavy caveat. While Jaman's website points to where users can download the necessary software, along with instructions, the AppleTV plug-in isn't officially supported by the company. That's because Jaman's solution still requires users to "hack" the device, since Apple is yet to sanction the AppleTV to run third-party applications."
